As a youngster, Timmy Turner lived the perfect life in Huntington Beach, California. Between working at the Sugar Shack (an H.B. landmark and his family’s restaurant), going to Huntington high school, and surfing contests, young Timmy had it made. That all changed four years ago when he made a journey to Indonesia, surfed the wonderland of breaks, and began videoing those sessions. Now he’s twenty years old, has joined forces with photographer Dustin Humphries, and has created The Ombak-a video on the culture, lifestyle, and surf of Indonesia.
Tim Turner is also a damn good surfer who can’t get enough of the Indo scene-its culture and lifestyle. He spends six months of the year there, and every time he goes, he takes all his extra clothes and surfboards to give to the kids over there.
